Top Ten Outstanding Guest Comments Of The Week

Well, I took a couple of Mondays off from sharing my favorite guests comments, but now I'm back.
Presenting last week's Top Ten Outstanding Guest Comments of the Week....in no particular order.
Let's rip......
#10 It's one thing to, say, check out the many, MANY, faces of Joan Rivers through the years, because she's been around since the Inquisition. But, seriously, check out The Evolution of Lohan's Face:
R.J. said...
She's aging like a leather car seat that's seen too much sun. 

#9 After having a couple of weekends away from the blog, there was lot's to dish in I Ain't One To Gossip, But....:
Princess said...

I hear Ms Diaz is all set to take on the role of "The Joker" in the next batman movie... Talk about type casting....At least she has the mouth for it!

#8 Having lived the majority of my life in Sacramento, and having volunteered at a few homeless shelters, I was irritated...annoyed...bothered...pissed off...to hear that The Catholic Church In Sacramento Stops Helping The Homeless:

Mitch Block said...

As always, you have said it all so well! Aren't these the same people who are always asking "What would Jesus do?" I had been under the impression that the Jesus who was supposed to have existed didn't judge and was simply kind and helped those less fortunate. But, no, let's let them starve to punish Faith Whitmore for her belief in personal freedom. That'll show 'em! 


#7 I always find it funny when these right-wing, so-called Christian groups, with the Disney-esque names, threaten a boycott because the entire world isn't goosestepping along to their crazy. And then I find it funny, how after they rage and rant and roil, they quietly give up, as in One Million Mom's Cry "Uncle!!!":
Max Journals said... 
I went to JCPenny to buy new work clothes BECAUSE they hired Ellen. Not because she is a lesbian but because she is a very decent loving generous tolerant respectful person - seems to me those words are supposed to describe Christians (guess not). Too bad I won't be alive a few generations from now to see Christians become a small minority - dare I say Cult.

#6 Now this story has two sides. The side of intolerance for the LGBT community is quite evident. But, as some pointed out, Al Fischer signed an agreement to abide by the teachings of the Church when he took that job and marrying his partner went against the agreement. All well and good, I suppose, but then another question was raised by You're Getting Married?? You're Fired!!:
Bill Dameron said...
And how many other teachers were fired for being divorced or committing adultery? Zero, I am sure. The hypocrisy of the catholic church at your service...
#5 I know Romney will get the GOP nomination because, as much as I find the Republican to be the Party of Crazy, Frothy Mix hasn't a snowball's chance in hell of getting the nomination. Which, for me, will make for great debates as Obama begins to demand Mitt Romney answer for being such a Mittsy Flipsy:
froggy said...
He was afer it before he was agin it. That said his goofy statements are starting to become disarmingly funny. This may be part of the master plan...

#4 So, so many Random Musings this week:
twunty mcslore said... 
What's wrong with being promiscuous? Seriously, if a woman wants to sleep with multiple partners, she should be able to without being slut shamed.
#3....and it's a two-fer: I am not a slave to fashion. i don't buy designer, I don't wear labels, but still, I know ugly when I see it, and I know stupid when it wears it, Fugly Fashion Fit For A Kash Kow:
mrs.missalaineus said...
it's like an ugly beaded sweater had an affair with a pair of cheap heels from payless and this is their bastard offspring. seriously, like someone went to the thrift store and 'repurposed; shit like the shit they make fun of on regretsy. GAG!

What has been seen cannot be unseen...
#2 Tennessee has been on my sh*t, or hit, list for some of their wacky politicians and their open hostility to the LGBT community. This week, however, presented a surprise with What's This Tennessee?:
www.DiatribesAndOvations.com said...
I am a Tennessean and, like Joy, I'm often insulted by the generalization that all Tennesseans are backwards asshats. Unfortunately, Tennessee seems to have a disproportionate amount of ignorant fools that are too lazy to think for themselves and, instead, do exactly what their told to do on Sunday mornings. All to often, their preachers tell them what to think (and how to vote) because “that’s how it’s always been”.
Personally, as a Tennessean, I speak out! I write letters to representatives and make phone calls to officials when I see silly pieces of time-wasting legislation like "Don't Say Gay" in the news. Fortunately, our Governor put the brakes on this stupidity … for now.
I sincerely hope that ISBL, and all right-minded bloggers, reporters, etc. continue to point a spotlight of shame at the archaic thought processes of my backwoods neighbors and their simple-minded leaders. Eventually, forward-thinking Tennesseans will speak out more often and more loudly than the dinosaurs we’ve been reading about in recent months.

#1....and we have another duo: Everything from the sublime, to the ridiculous, to the insightful, to the brilliant in this week's I Didn't Say It....:
Will J said...
"Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you're rewarded significantly."
Maybe that is the trouble with my job search.

Miss Ginger Grant said...
It's a shame you couldn't find one of those photos of Bachmann where she is looking all crazy and shit.
  
So, which one is your favorite?

Congrats Miss G and WillJ!

R.J. said...

Congrats everyone!

Max Journals said...

Thank you. Max

Joy said...

Thank you, fellow Tennessean D&O, for the support. I spent 37 years trying to teach students to think critically, analyze information, and support decisions with facts. It worked quite well with many of them and quite a few of those moved out of state. We have too many here (and in the rest of the country) who vote against their own best interest and are manipulated easily. It frustrates the hell out of me.

It was actually a close vote when Harold Ford lost to Whiny-voice Bob Corker. A Karl Rove operative orchestrated one of the dirtiest campaigns we've had in the state, and that's saying something!

Maybe we can convince you to do some arguing without those logical fallacies you like to use, Bob.
